Advisor: Jean Waldrop, M.L.S.

The master’s degree in library/information science is considered the entry-level degree for the profession. Harding University does not offer an undergraduate degree in librarianship but recommends the following plan to students contemplating such a career:

  1. Develop a broad background in the liberal arts by electing courses in humanities, natural sciences and social sciences.
  2. Choose a major of particular interest. Libraries search for professionals with a wide range of subject specialties.
  3. Arrange an advising appointment with the library director to discuss undergraduate course options, library experience opportunities, and accredited graduate schools.
  4. If school librarianship is the goal, students should take the professional education courses required for certification by the state in which they plan to work.
